    That would be when you bought your first telescope then! ;-)

    The costumes might have been a bit more conservatives... but the babes were clearly just as gorgeous then! :)

    Yes, remember the two-piece. Strange that all 3 girls in the photo are wearing almost the same costume.

    I believe this pic was taken at 1st Beach, and that 4th Beach is the long beach in the background to the right.
    Recently bought an Aug '53 National Geographic on eBay with a double page spread of Clifton (pic taken 'early '52'), maybe from the then-new 'Mark ll' Clifton Hotel. It clearly shows 2nd, 3rd & 4th...
    And i reckon this is a promotional shot, with nice new nets and life preserver nogal(!) artistically draped, like the chicks, around the rocks. Whoever heard of professional fishermen's boats at Clifton by the 1960s!
    Etienne, I'm so grateful to you for posting this marvellous collection, man. I've spent a blissful 3 hours on a lekker Sunday morning (now arvo) here in Adelaide (the South Australian one), wallowing in nostalgia for 'die lekker Kaap' that I left w-a-y back in Sep 1968...

    Dankie Tablevu......nothing beats a few hours of indulging in nostalgia every now and then!
    and......thanks, of course its 1st beach.It took 475 views before someone picked it up.
    Will change it.

    See that house at the top, above Victoria Road, lived there until 46, it was a pair of semis, now one abode. They had scorpions there!

    Remember the Clifton hotel with fondness, used to go there most Fridays and dance to the Square Set (Neville Whitmal and Noel Klinkhamer (spelling).

    Lived for a while in the distance a stones throw from the beach next to the tennis courts, was my first school year so did not really appreciate the beach "views" yet

    I hated Clifton Beach, the girls were all snots! They had boobs and boyfriends I couldn't wait to grow up so I could have boobs and develop interesting curves. Guess my folks saw what was coming and sent me off to Koshuis! He heheh. Any of you recall Sandy Bay at Llandano? You had to walk what felt like miles to get there.
